The Great Pretenders
Yes, friend, there are the great pretenders
Among us in the house of prayer,
For wherever there’s the genuine,
The counterfeit is always there.
Christ dealt with hypocrites in the church
Long ago, when He walked on earth,
And the prayer within our hearts should be
That they’d experience new birth.
Yes, there are still the great pretenders,
Pretending to love our Lord;
They play a game, sing praise to His Name,
Then, with their lives, deny His Word.
But let us not use that lame excuse,
“Too many hypocrites are there”
And miss the greatest blessings of life…
Gathered in the house of prayer.
"Let both (wheat and tares) grow together until the harvest"
"Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is;
but exhorting one another: and so much more, as ye see the day approaching."
